Then started in a new, stern direction.
"As the first woman to win album of the year at the Grammy's twice, I want to say to all the young women out there: there are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame," Swift said near the close of the show.
"But if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you, someday when you get where you’re going. You’ll look around and you’ll know it was you and the people who love you who put you there and that will be the greatest feeling in the world."
As anyone who has followed the recent, bizarredalliances of Kanye West could tell, the speech was a not-so-thinly veiled response to a derogatory line in West's new song, Famous.
"I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. / Why? I made that (expletive) famous," West raps in the single from his recently released album, The Life of Pablo.
Swift put out a statement through her publicist after the line dropped last week, but had yet to speak publicly.
While this is sure to throw even more gas on a flame war that has been burning on and off since the MTV VMAs seven years ago, it's hard to fault the singer for taking the opportunity shut down the unsupported claim on her success.
Though we know not everyone will agree with us.
